Clear Night Crescent
Silently rumbling, darkness floats.
Empty waves thrashing on shores beyond horizon.
Black and dense the night rolls on.
Vague and hazy and immensely sharp,
emptiness transcends all and asserts itself.
Ecstatic sensual ripples merge
into the lonely luminescence.
Like a brimming cup holding dormant beauty
I see you lying in that sea.
Drunken in the night’s nectar,
swaying to the rhythm of the waves,
like the bright face of a mother to be
ever aware of the child in her womb.
To that serene smile of a distant peaceful joy
I offer silent awe and worship.
